Kenya’s prostitution to the west (Mesfin Arega)


Kenya _ Africa _ West

By Mesfin Arega 

Kenya is now infamous for being the only sub-Sharan country in the gang of 40 “galvanized against Russia’s invasion”.  It does so knowing full well that the war in Ukraine is not between Ukraine and Russia but between Russia and the west, and that west is waging this war to subjugate the non-western world by humiliating, if not defeating, the principal power opposing that subjugation, Russia, and then making it an unforgettable example for other wannabe challengers of the west, principally China.  

More importantly, Kenya stood fully behind the unprecedented ganging up of the west against Russia knowing that if the west defeats Russia, it will most likely defeat China and then, having no serious challenger to its domination, it will immediately march straight to Africa to realize its long-sought neocolonial dream, as clearly stated by one of the loudest saber rattlers of the war in Ukraine, the current prime minister of UK, Boris Johnson.  

The best fate for Africa would be if the old colonial powers, or their citizens, scrambled once again in her direction; on the understanding that this time they will not be asked to feel guilty.  The continent may be a blot, but it is not a blot upon our conscience … The problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge anymore.” (Boris Johnson).  

Moreover, Kenya sided with the west knowing that, if the west were to dominate the world without any serious challenger, it will readily throw off its veil of freedom, democracy, and human right to completely reveal its true racist self by riving Gobineau’s theory of master race, as paraphrased by another racist English prime minister, Mr. Winston Churchill. 

I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly-wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place. The Aryan stock is bound to triumph.”  (Winston Churchill). 

Boris Johnson implied the same when he wrote that Africa’s “problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge anymore”, meaning, “Africans are subhuman and, therefore, must be ruled by the Aryan master race”.  In short, according to English neocolonialists, Africa is a “hopeless continent” and, therefore, is forever “the Whiteman’s burden”.   

Why would a colonized African country gang up with English neocolonialists who are proud of their barbaric colonial history and are itching to repeat it, against Russia who fought colonialists all over Africa alongside Africa?  Why did Kenya’s UN ambassador, Mr. Martin Kimani, purposely and dishonestly confuse Mr. Putin’s quest for security with the openly stated neocolonialist aspirations of English politicians and statesmen?  

Was it because Kenya’s present leadership is happy that Kenya’s borders were drawn by its English colonial masters who, for example, made sure that their colony incorporated almost the whole of lake Turkana, even though the lake is fed almost exclusively by the Omo river of Ethiopia, who, because of its scintillating anticolonial history, is permanently sabotaged by the west to be in a state of permanent civil war?   

Was it because Kenya, whose economy is more or less fully controlled by westerners and their Indian surrogates, is allowed by the west to enjoy relative peace so that its relatively ok situation can be easily contrasted with the warring and impoverished non-colonized Ethiopia so as to give neocolonialists a reason to argue “colonization was good for Africa and so will recolonization”?  

What would make the dear friend of Ethiopia, the great Jomo Kenyatta, turn in his grave more than an English neocolonialist like Mr. Johnson contrasting Kenya with Ethiopia to justify colonization and openly push for recolonization by saying Africa’s “problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge anymore”.  

What has the present leadership of Kenya been promised by the west for its despicable prostitution to the west?  Is the promise worth the shame and humiliation by blacks all over the world?  What if the promise turned out to be a false promise, considering the proven track record of the west on false promises made to the natives of Africa, America, and Australia?  After all, was it not Jomo Kenyatta who famously said, “the Europeans gave us bibles only so that when we close our eyes to pray, they could take our land”, thereby advising Africans never ever to trust the West, above all the English?

  1. Africa was never uncolonized and never defeated colonization. When African countries started gaining independence, it was only so the slaves would not lose moral. That’s why the US and UK claimed the non-black, non-African Cushites from Abyssinia were never colonized so that people with black skin would always have something to hope for. It was a psychological experiment to ensure “White” supremacy always exists. “Black” people will always be the losers because they don’t love themselves and they have too much pride.

    That’s why it is extremely important that Ethiopians, Eritreans, and Somalis do not identify as Black or African. These ideologies are traps to alter your mental state. Black culture consists of drug addicts, broken families, criminal activity, explicit sexuality, and demonic rap music. African culture consists self-hatred, skin bleaching, fake hair, booty shaking, and having 20 children that you don’t take care of. Our people will destroy our cultures and languages if we accept these false identities.

  2. It is not a dignified way to call a die-hard friend and reliable neighbor such a vile term. This is totally misplaced and reckless. The old country already has its hands full. To be a committed fan of Putin is one thing but to insult a friendly neighbor is utterly irresponsible. Very, very sad!!!

  3. Dear Editor at Borkena,

    What are you doing publishing an article with a juvenile subject like that? It’s not just inappropriate but downright crass. You are aware that Kenya is a friendly neighbor who has done us no harm in our 70+ years of relationship. Who says Kenya has to choose what Ethiopia chooses all the time. That aside, why stick with a writer who is unable to express his/her views without resorting to infantile language and with logic? To the logic part, what I think you should have considered asking the writer is: Who is the bigger threat to Ethiopia: Kenya’s support for Ukraine or Sudan’s army that is is 70Km deep inside Ethiopian territory violating our sovereignty?
